state and local officials because they are going to be providing you with the best advice in terms of how to deal with this storm over the coming days. we just had an excellent meeting with the fema team here, the various agencies that are in charge, including the department of defense, department of energy and others that are going to need to respond very quickly. under craig fugate's leadership here at fema, we've had a chance to talk to the region al officials as well, and i had talks with governors of various states as well as other leaders. everyone is confident that the staging process, the pre-positioning of equipment that will be needed to respond to the storm are in place. but as craig has emphasized, this hasn't hit landfall yet, so we don't yet know where it's going to hit, where we're going to see the biggest impacts, and that's exactly why it's so important for us to respond big and respond fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank all the members of the team for the outstanding work that they're doing, but the other thing that makes this storm unique
where local artists come together and different san francisco communities form and strengthen our common bond. i grew up in plaza east public housing. it was a tough place back then, as a number of places in the district still are. the economic and family circumstances for everyone were pretty dire. i saw family and friends lost to the streets, to prison and death including two of my siblings, i saw terrible poverty, crime, drugs, hopelessness and violence and joblessness but that was not all that we had. those people that i grew up have something else, a fighting experience resilience, those people found it in themselves to help their neighbors family and friends however they could. we relied upon each other and out of the crisis we created a great community. this is the spirit of san francisco. and that is why i am so thrilled to be able to speak to you today and now, because so many of you watching are my family, my friends, people who form the same communities that raised me up from difficult beginnings into the woman i am today. i can think of no more important calling than to use t

way to educate our students is at the state level. that is between the local school board, teachers, and parents. i said i would take a look at the department of education, and it's possible, but they do some good things. we do not want to throw it away, but we need -- any federal organization, especially as big as the department of education, there's a lot of waste in there. give that money to the states. they can do it themselves. that's a state issue. it would be more economical doing it that way. we need to eliminate a lot of mandates from the department of education. i don't think a lot of career politicians, which i am not, but they do not grasp how these mandates that have been mandated down to the state, including education, they have to be paid for. it falls to the state usually. the federal government will just mandated. let's eliminate that and use our money wisely to focus it on a laser like the local schools, teachers, and the school boards. that's how you improve education. >> mr. casey. but this is a very important question that deals with our long-term economic growt

conditions we would like to propose to the san francisco board of supervisors for our city's local business enterprise lbe ordinance. and specifically, what we would like to do is change the definition of puc regional projects. the context for this proposed change or the context for the puclbe program is that in 2006 as the city was developing the lbe program, we developed the puclbe program to expand opportunities for small business he located within our regional service area to access construction -- the water system improvement program projects. as you all know, the $4.6 billion program, two-thirds of which is paid for by our regional wholesale customers. so, we felt its was critically importantv that the small businesses located in those areas where those projects were taking place could compete. the program has been very successful in creating that opportunity for regional businesses throughout the sfpuc service area. with the water system improvement program in its later phases of implementation, we would now like to change the definition of puc regional projects to include, one, all
at how do we consolidate from 9 reservoirs into 8 and begin to build our local water resources to offset a small percentage of water loss that might happen. let's figure that out. let's not have a conversation based on hypobole, in terms of sean saying there are 7 reports saying it's not feasible, that's not true. what's unfortunate about all those is the city of san francisco has boycotted participating in those studies. san francisco says, wait a minute we have a unique responsibility here. we're the only city that stores our water in a national park so let's see how we can do better because we don't do a very good job. orange county recycles 30 million gallons of water a day, we recycle zero. we have a great opportunity to guarantee our water future and undo the damage to yosemite national park. >> sean, one point i know is the hydroelectric power generated by that dam, if i remember it's 41 million dollars? do i have my numbers right? >> there are a number of reasons why hetch hetchy is such a benefit to the city, not the least of which is that it produces carbon free public pow

along the shore. and this is really what local officials are worried about. the high tide and the combination of this long duration of the storm that they are expecting. they are expecting about 36 hours for hurricane sandy to really come through this area and just to show you over here as well, they have evacuated this entire area of downtown ocean city. and that evacuation deadline is fast approaching. we have seen people flee town all day long. and they have opened up local shelters in this county where we are hearing about 40 people resorted to shelters already. clearly, they have been preparing for this and also have learned from last year's hurricane irene. here's the local mayor. all right, well, we talked to the local mayor earlier and they are prepared under 24-hour operations here trying to keep the lines of communication open with residents here who chose not to evacuate as well as keeping up-to-date with everything going on in terms of emergency responses and any type of damage that may come because of hurricane sandy, don and chad. >> sandy, standby. we have c
, representing district five because i have long worked to make local government work better for the needs of the neighborhood residents. all that you have to do is look at how i have spent my entire professional life. i have the most robust record of achievements in shaping local public policy of any candidate running for district five supervisor. my father was born in mexico and worked as a mechanic fixing the farm equipment in the central valley. some of my childhood memory ss watching laborers work for little or no compensation at a young age based on what i witnessed i developed a understanding of economic injustice. growing up in the 60s my life experience has shaped my activism and my desire to promote meaningful change for my community. in 1982 i moved to the bay area and began taking classes at san francisco state university. eventually i finished at the california institute of integral studys. i worked for a number of stockbrokerages in the financial district, and my professional career, and at night, i got more and more engaged in the local activist community advocating for vari
a lot of the contractors were dee-certified sometime ago. and we are mostly concerned about the local hiring aspect that the city approved. but the one problem that i have with the city and county of san francisco is that we have compliance officers, mostly all of the departments. but we don't have state certified compliance officers or federal. and what happens is, i mentioned to director harrison in the hallway 2001 day, i said, you don't have anyone that can go out on these job sites to see whether or not the people that are on these jobs are from the city and city and county of san francisco. he says to me, well, espinola, all i do is put on my hard hat and i go on a job site. * i said, yes, look who you are. you're the money man. so, you can do what you please. but you don't write reports to the state about the contractors and whether or not they are abiding by the law. and he looked at me. he said, i never thought about that. and, you know, it hurts me for the last 50 years dealing with human rights is that their wings have been clipped in order not to make sure that residents
state, where he told a group of local teamsters that new hampshire's four electoral votes could make all the difference. governor romney spent the day in all-important florida, in pensacola, home to a major naval air station. romney brought up a sore spot from the final debate. >> i made the point that our navy is now smaller than anytime in almost a hundred years. and the president's response was well, we don't use bayonets and horses anymore. >> reporter: president obama said romney hiked fees on everything, as governor of massachusetts. >> he raised fees to get a birth certificate, which would have been expensive for me. >> reporter: romney said mr. obama broke promises to cut the deficit and save medicare. >> he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. >> reporter: both sides are wary of the impact on polling locations, if power outages or storm damage prevents voters from casting their ballots. president obama has adjusted his schedule to stay out of the storm's path. he is flying to florida half a day early tomorrow for a campaign event and he's getting regular updates from hi
some 50,000 individuals to serve their time locally, and these offenses that we were talking about here are currently in the list of offenses that were to be served in county jails now. and if the notion here is to provide services and treatment to these individuals from a practical point of view, and i lean heavily on my experience as a misdemeanor prosecutor for all those years when we did possession offenses, when we tried many, many under the influence offenses, especially heroin, i don't see that under the current system that reducing these penalties from felony to misdemeanor is going to have any incentive for this population to obtain treatment. i also do not agree that under this measure that locally there will be additional moneys available for treatment. i noticed in the list of supporters for senator leno's measure, it's heavily supported by people in the treatment community. i think that that's great because we all understand that treatment does work. treatment in these forms of addiction will help these people get on track because they are broken. i think there is a general

the section that alleged violations of local campaign finance lobbies and financial interest and government ethics laws, which commissioner hur pointed out. however, section 4.105 a, states. any person can file a complaint with the ethics commission alleging that a city officer or employee has engaged in improper activity by, again, violating campaign finance lobbying, conflicts of interest, or government ethics laws, regulations. the difference between them is that the complaints can be filed under 4.105 a. alleging many different violations of improper activities but under 4.105 d, not all of them are investigated pursuant to procedures in c3699-13. so the whole thing in my opinion is moot. . i believe that miss herrick, may have also have wrongly claimed that the california evidence code 1040, and its definition of official information, may have been misquoted and she may have incorrectly relied on deputy city attorney improper letter to the sunshine ordinance task force in which he wrongly combined two or three of dr. derek kurr's complaints under one ball of wax wrongly. he made a mi
at the national weather service so far. look at the rainfall, we're up from last night. locally a foot in new jersey. the biggest difference this year is stream flows across pennsylvania and new york are much lower so we may save a few from flooding but it's inevitable that we will sigh flash flooding in many, many places. and crippling snowfall in parts of virginia. all of these elements coming together for massive power outages, some 60 mill brion peo affected, we are iing 10 million to lose power from this megastorm. >> some remarkable numbers there, jim, thank you. all day sandy has been lashing north carolina's outer banks. julie martin is in nags head for us tonight. julie? >> reporter: we have been taking a beating all day long here along the outer banks, the tropical storm force wind gusts started around midnight and they really haven't let up, that plus the stinging rain showers coming in has made for a miserable existence all along the outer banks, and sandy is well offshore a couple of hundred miles is a testment to the size and strength of this storm. many are chosen to stay and r
